All rebate certificates must be received by FPL for processing by the deadline specified on the rebate certificate. Approval for any exception must be obtained from FPL. For the sole purpose of ensuring program compliance in order to issue the rebate, FPL reserves the right to verify any installation and will be the sole determiner of whether the requirements of these Program Standards have been met. Customer must allow access for this purpose. Reporting Requirements Program costs will be reported to the Commission in FPL s Energy Conservation Cost Recovery ( ECCR ) True-Up and Projection filings. Additionally, the program achievements will be reported in the Demand-Side Management ( DSM ) Annual Report. Disclaimers The issuance of a rebate by FPL under the Program shall not be considered or relied upon by the customer to be confirmation that: (i) the customer has selected the proper HVAC system; and/or (ii) that any of the underlying work performed by the contractor was done properly pursuant to the manufacturer recommendations and specifications, building codes, other applicable laws, industry standards or individual contract requirements. FPL does not participate in or approve the selection of the HVAC system and FPL does not manage or provide oversight of the work performed by the contractor selected by the customer. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to investigate and select an HVAC system that is appropriate for their specific application, perform their own due diligence in selecting the contractor, manage the contractor they select to perform the work and to take the necessary precautions they deem prudent to ensure the equipment, materials and work meets their expectations. FPL does not provide any supervision, control or instructions to contractor regarding the means and methods for performing any work that might be eligible for a rebate. This is entirely the responsibility of the contractor and likewise the sole responsibility of the customer to manage and inspect the work performed by the contractor. FPL provides no guaranty or warranty regarding the amount of energy savings to be expected, the equipment and/or the work provided by the contractor. Effective: November 9,
